Claude Giroux is F$&@ing Hilarious

Claude Giroux seems like a real bitch to play against. And we wouldn’t want it any other way.

He just oozes gingery hockey sex all over whichever sheet of frozen water he steps onto. Not only does he score and pass and hit and make puck bunnies damp, but he also might be the league’s leading chirper. In episode 3 of 24/7 he got under the skin of the series’ foil, Steve Ott, by laughing off Ott’s supposed faceoff skills… and then winning the draw.

We were treated to more drops of ginger last night. First, Giroux stopped by Henrik Lundqvist’s net: 

Giroux: Fuckin’ Henrik, let me score one tonight. Just one.

Lundqvist: [slaps stick]

Giroux: Just one.


Giroux would score, one goal. 

Later, at the start of the third period, Giroux informed Scott Hartnell that James van Riemsdyk would perform Artem Anisimov’s shotgun celebration, should he score.

That exchange: 

Giroux: He said if he scores he does “The Anisimov.” [turns too JVR] You going to shoot the goalie? 

Hartnell: Do it.

JVR: [nods head]

Giroux: I don’t know who I’m going to fight, though. I got 62, shotgun.


62 is the very pretty Carl Hagelin, who just got his balls snipped off by the mouth of Claude Giroux.

We continue:

Hartnell: I got Girardi.

Giroux: Who’s got Boyle? [turns to JVR] You got Boyle?

JVR: You see what Rupp did?

Giroux: What he do?

JVR: He did the “Jags Salute,” that’s why we gotta respond.

Giroux: No he didn’t. Fuck off.

Giroux: [to Brian Byole] Hey, did Rupp do the “Jags Salute?”

Boyle: I thought it was pretty cool.

Giroux: How is that cool? That’s the second goal of his fucking career. 

Hartnell: That’s fucking embarrassing is what it is.

Boyle: Shut up.

Giroux: The guy’s a fucking legend.


What a comedy trio they are– G, Harts and JVR. Giroux is the gifted, naggy little friend; Hartnell is the instigator; and JVR is the silent assassin.  

Unfortunately in this skit, the assassin’s rifle never went off, and the Flyers lost the Winter Classic, 3-2. But that reality should in no way take away from what was an amazing production– HBO's 24/7.

  1. When describing JVR as the ‘silent assassin,’ did you mean the scared little bitch that shies away from hits, fights, and anything physical?

  2. Love Giroux, but that sounds like standard trash talk to me. Plus, he has the delivery of JD Harmeyer.

  3. Those were all funny, but my favorite was Hartnell to Malkin
    “Ugliest guy in the league. Ugliest.”

  4. Im a flyers fan and everything but the best part of the whole series was when Rupp beat the shit out of that guy who suckered punch delzotto

  5. Funny, but up just a goal, they should’ve stayed focused instead of thinking of goal celebrations. kinda came off cocky when the rangers have had their number all season long.

  6. I prefer one of the best scorers in the NHL to chirp and back it up like he does vs. someone who whines at the refs game after game (Calahan & Crosby).

  7. “…oozes gingery hockey sex…”
    Yes. He does.
    The Henrik exchange was priceless. Would have loved to see Henrik’s facial expression.

  8. Kyle, you have to get footage of G telling Schenn – “this isn’t the fucking World Junior Championships”,
    (after Schenn scores his first goal and celebrates by jumping into the glass)

  9. I wonder if G was always like this. Since this year he can backup all the talk now that he’s the best in the league. He was always good but he was never the star of the team.

  10. blonders – I agree
    That’s one of the reasons why so many people love this team. And yeah G walks the walk too.

  11. haha oozes gingery hockey sex. i love it. he’s the shit.. and he definitely stole the episode. what i wouldn’t give to.. nevermind.

  12. I also loved, whoever (perhaps Hartnell) at the end of WC game saying, don’t shake their hands, get off the ice. Great to see/hear that emotion.
    24/7 was awesome.

  13. I’ve watched all four 24/7s – much much better than actually watching the Flyers – Comcast should steal the idea and do that all season – I’d tune in for that once a week.
    I wasn’t a big fan of the trio (nursing a 1 goal lead) all talking about how to celebrate a goal. What are they wide-receivers?
    Hey Torts, hug the sick kid – now drop 30 F-bombs in a row that the sick kid will see/hear when he watches the program with his mom and dad.
    Then you see Harts and G going to church, praying before a meal (this had to be a joke) – then dropping F-bombs all over.

  14. That clip really was hilarious, we never got to see G’s sense of humor really until this last episode. It’s too bad we lost, watching that episode was bittersweet.

  15. JMac, why is saying grace before a meal a “joke”? Trash talking is part of their job, it has nothing to do with their religious beliefs.

  16. You are all wee-nubbed wankerers for thinking this was the best part of the episode. It made me cringe the most. Instead of worrying about protecting their 2-1 lead, they’re in a hissyfit just because Rupp imitated Jagr. Grow the fuck up!
    I thought this was one of the reasons why Richards and Carter got dumped, because they were all acting like a bunch of stoopid frat boys. Man if Pronger was there he’d be the one spearing them in the prig for bitching about all that.
    Really, that whole part was just gobsmackingly embarressing to watch in the way that it made the Flyers stars so petty. Thank goodness it’s all over and we can move on. The only future documenterry about the Flyers that I want to see is the one about them winning their third Cup.

  17. Chill out McGinty. Giroux is a damn hard worker, he can talk all the shit he wants, because he backs it up with his play. Also that exchange was awesome. I loved watching Giroux whore Rupp, just like he did Ott. Ciroux is the man

  18. McGinty: “Iron Balls” on the internet; wet between the legs when watching Giroux skate. By the way, thinking Richards and Carter were “dumped” because they were acting like frat boys, well, that’s just “stoopid.”

  19. theswayzeexpress, Oh I’m calmer than you are.
    BTW, just like Laddie Boyo, I thought Giroux was “F$&@ing hillarryous” with all his trash talking, like at Lundquist and Anisimoff, that is great and I know he can dish it out tough like the Greatest Flyers of yore. But I’d wish they had used their stopages to talk to each other about strategy, especially defense strategy, instead of the petty talk about embarressing NY by mocking their guy’s goal celebration. Well guess who got embarressed.
    Maybe they thought since they were in the middle of the ice the mics wouldn’t pick them up. Don’t they know those parrolbollic mics are a wonder of technollogy? I wished they would have just had that kind of talk when the cameras and mics were off in the lockerroom (and there were times when they were off, of course).

    OK, whatever gets you to go to sleep at night, kid.

  20. flyers should worry about not blowing 2 goals leads instead of chirping..Giroux is more worried about doing the ‘Anisimov’ than playing defense. Rangers are 50 times better than filthydelphia.

  21. Not to put too fine of a point on it, but when they were yapping about Rupp disrespecting Jagr and how they’d retaliate by mocking Anisimoff’s goal celebration, they were basicly acting the same petty way Steve Ott did when he got bitchy about Lavvy preseeding the Stars through the Dallas tunnel.

  22. What’s up every one, here every person is sharing such know-how, therefore it’s
    nice to read this blog, and I used to visit this weblog everyday.
